        Customer Tactics

        I have done a few market stalls and fairs with my googlie-eye Design business and I still find it very difficult to gauge the customer: even a simple smile and a hello can either welcome someone in or push them away immediately....I don't want to be quiet myself, I like to engage with the customer, but I find it so hard to know whether they are happy perusing the stall, or are they willing to say hello back!

          You could start a conversation after a smile with "everything is made from recycled materials". This would be an informative comment about your wares and is descriptive of your items. The customer can then ignore it or repond. Those who ignore it will probably not buy. My years of selling have taught me many things about customer behaviour. The biggest is probably that someone cannot laugh if they are being serious, so I use humor as a way of checking if someone is relaxed - hence a potential customer.

            Oooo - buyer psychology coming in for sure!! Good idea, will try that out and see how it goes on the next stall. I have opened with, 'Just to let you know, all the badges and keyrings are 2 for £8, if that helps at all?' - catches some people's attention - I guess just a learning curve!!
